How to get a deposit bonus?
Most bookmakers offer promotions for their new clients. How to choose the best welcome bonus? What to pay attention to when selecting a deposit bonus? Find out more about this in our latest betting guide.
Let’s be honest, each and every one of us likes to bonuses and promotions, which helps us get additional resources to bet with. Bookmakers offer a ton of promotions, which must prompt us to register with them but not with other operators. One of the, if not the most popular bonus is the one we get at the beginning of our relationship with a particular service - which is a welcome bonus.
Lots of bookmakers offer us a so-called deposit bonus right away. What does it mean? It’s quite simple. When registering a new account with the bookmaker of your choice, you have no option but to make the first deposit in order to start betting. The deposit bonus means that our money will get multiplied according to the aforementioned rules. It’s also important to know all the details about a particular promo because sometimes the conditions are tough to fulfil.
What bonus conditions are worth more attention?
Deposit bonuses are for sure of a big use and must be taken advantage of without any second thought. Thanks to them, our balance will look a bit better, and we would have additional resources to spend on betting. So, for this to happen, we must fulfil a range of conditions that sometimes are more complicated. Stay tuned and find out what rules are worth your attention.
- How much of bonus are you going to get? The most important thing is by how much will our deposit be multiplied? Some bookmakers offer us a 50% welcome bonus, which means that by depositing, for example, a €10, you are going to get a €5 bonus. There are bookmakers, who promise us to double and even triple our first deposit. You must also remember that most of the bookmakers’ welcome promos are the most generous ones they have to offer, but we only can use it once. Therefore, we must squeeze the most out it.
- What’s the required rollover? Unfortunately, our world is not that perfect yet for banknotes to fall from the sky and for top online bookmakers to giveaway money left & right. After making your deposit and receiving a bonus the rollover will be required to later be able to withdraw it to your bank account. Seems complicated? Not at all.
- The rollover amount is nothing else but a sum of stakes you must bet altogether in order for your bonus money to become real. Some services require an x2 (which means if you get a €10 bonus your stakes must add up to €20, in order to cash it), others x3 or even x4 rollover. It’s obvious that the higher the rollover is, the harder it will be to accomplish.
- The rollover deadline, in other words, the time you have to make all the bets to be able to cash your bonus. Relax, online bookmakers are more liable when it comes to this deadline, giving us more than enough time. Usually, it is around 30 days, but in case of the services which offer a more generous bonus, which requires a higher rollover it could be extended up to 60 days. It is important to know this information before you get into it. Other than that, there should be no problems.
Why do bookmakers offer bonuses?
- Bets excluded from rollover. This is one of the most important things, that must be checked before we try to get our hands on a bonus. Some bookmakers exclude a certain type of bets, markets or sports from the rollover (which is, of course, mentioned in terms & conditions). As a result, bonus rollover becomes significantly complicated for people who only follow the excluded type of sport or else. It also works the other way. There are services, which only allow rollovers exceptionally through live bets or accas with min. odds, which lowers your chances.
- The required amount of slip selections. This is only related to bookmakers that require accas for their rollovers. The only thing is that some services ask you to have 2 selections on the slip when on others will make you have 3 or even 4 of those.
- Min. odds. Regardless of the type of bet (single or acca), bookmakers usually have something like min. odds bets that can be used for a bonus rollover. In some cases, it’s just 1.40 (2/5) but in others 1.80 (4/5) or 2.00 (1/1). You must check it beforehand before it’s too late.
